    To make the frosting taste like pineapple buy pine apple extract and use that as your flavouring. Add a tiny bit at a time until you get the desired flavour.

    Any ideas for a pineapple substitute? I am looking at making a chocolate amaretto cake, with a pineapple buttercream frosting for a hawaiin party. Any ideas?

    My mother used to sandwich this frosting between plain graham crackers when I was a child. It was awesome! Thanks for reminding me.
